When I invented Cyran, I was still under the impression (acquired in school) that a syllable consisted of a vowel plus any surrounding consonants, and the syllable break was always before the consonant immediately before the second vowel. Thus I'd've claimed that it syllabified as ctstyts-ti. My actual pronunciation of the word was closer to ct-styt-sti, with the [S] functioning as a syllable nucleus.
